    Another lovely breakfast at Bills - refreshing to find a restaurant that consistently delivers on excellent service and food quality. Breakfast was served on warm plates and was very tasty. Keep up the good work and we will see you soon.

    Perfect for a birthday lunch. Food and service was great. Especially the cinnamon dohnuts. Bloody Mary was too peppery. Peppercorns floating in it. Been before and it can be noisy at times. Wasn’t too bad this time but I have a hearing aid which enhances background noise and distracts me from my own conversations with my family/friends

    Fantastic Saturday morning breakfast. My last review of Bills RL requested a more efficient service to make sure food was hot when served - this time round plates and food were scorching hot. Made sure a difference. Well done Bills for this improvement. Food was delicious and well presented with just the right level of service. Thank you.

    Booked my sons 30th birthday at Bills Rushden Lakes on 3rd June. Was concerned the whole party would go smoothly as email communication hadn’t been great. I needn’t have worried! The staff were brilliant, good pre food orders service, no half chickens which 3 people had ordered, but there were plenty other meals to choose. They looked after birthday cake and presented it to Sam all the staff singing! Thank you so much xxx

    Unfortunately this was a completely different experience to the last time I ate here for a family member’s birthday meal. Our food took over 40 minutes to arrive, they brought the 2 adult meals out but not the child’s meal out, and that came out 15 minutes later. We couldn’t eat straight away because the table had not been set, so we had to wait a further 5 minutes waiting for someone to bring us cutlery and napkins. The fries came out cold, we asked for fresh hot ones, and only got one pot to share between the both of us. My friend’s glass was dirty and then 3 times a waiter came up to us with food and drinks meant for another table. Very disappointing experience.

    There menu has changed and there's a lot less choice than before. Usually they also offer a specials lunch menu, but not today. My husband ordered steak and eggs and the eggs were overcooked and the steak like leather. Had we not been with friends, it would of been sent back. Not many things on their menu that I'd like now, so probably won't return and have always been a regular visitor.

    Pancakes were stodgy and hard and virtually inedible. Manager told me they realised this was an issue as they had changed to gluten free flour a month ago and it wasn’t working as well as self raising. I could see lots of plates with pancakes uneaten. If you know this is an issue you should be addressing it. However Manager deducted meal from total bill so was dealt with satisfactorily.

    We had been there an hour and our food had not arrived. Other diners who came in before us were already eating. Even when food arrived after we chased it was cold and had to be sent back. All in all very poor.

    Quite a disappointing experience on the whole! We ate at Bills Rushden Lakes last month and although we had to wait on that occasion for nearly 40mins at the bar for a table to become free (despite having pre-booked) the staff were great, food was good and we all left feeling satisfied with our evening. However, we ate there again last night for our son’s birthday meal and the menu had changed since our last visit, offering less variety and the quality of the dishes felt poor by comparison. One of our party asked for 2 items to be omitted from her dish but only one was, so she couldn’t eat the dish and we were still charged in full for it. For afters we had the iced tiramisu, banana split, and apple pie sundae and with the exception of the apple pie Sundae they tasted basic and unimaginative. Hopefully they realise the error of their ways and go back to the old menu!
